Progressive jazz trio The Bad Plus - bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson, and drummer David King - came together at the end of the 20th century and have been stirring up a musical stew that defy easy description ever since. Drawing on sources as diverse as classical, jazz, rock, pop and beyond, they have created a singular aesthetic that forces even the most skeptical listener to rethink the commonly held notions of what differentiates one style of music from another.

Except for their interpretation of Stravinskys Rite of Spring, their last four albums focused almost exclusively on original compositions. Its Hard, however, will mark The Bad Plus' return to an aspect of their roots, the very thing that first made trio famous: the deconstruction of songs from the pop/rock and R&B worlds including evocative takes on works by Peter Gabriel, Johnny Cash, Prince, Ornette Coleman, Cyndi Lauper and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs among others.

Among the tightest, hardest-working bands in the world - and there has not been a line-up change or substitution in 17 years - this is a group in their absolote prime, returning to early form, which is an event not to be missed!
